Who We Serve
When a new financial system is implemented, there are typically outstanding accounts receivable (A/R) records that are not converted to the new software with line item detail. Although keeping the legacy financial system up and running for collectors to work down A/R is an option, this solution often comes with costly vendor support contracts and requires additional maintenance resources from IT.
An active archive like HealthData ArchiverTM offers interactive transaction posting which support A/R wind down and collection agency management, allowing legacy systems to be decommissioned. By migrating line item detail to an archive to be worked down to zero, costs of legacy system support and maintenance are reduced.
“Our challenge was twofold. We wanted the ability to keep running AR ourselves and we wanted to avoid paying what the legacy vendor would charge. [...] With Harmony, we were able to archive detailed account records to meet retention requirements while continuing to collect what insurance companies and patients owed.”
Post charges, adjustments, and refunds against archived A/R in HealthData Archiver™ so that wind-down can happen and the legacy medical billing system can get decommissioned. Includes general ledger exports, patient aged trial balance reports, and paper or electronic patient statements.
Automate the posting of payments collected by the HealthData Archiver™ customer’s collection agencies with complete functionality to send payment files and notes files to be processed within the archive. Payments and notes automatically are posted and viewable in the Transaction Posting Module bookmark. Medical office billing staff can continue collection efforts, continue communication between predefined interfaces and G/L systems and produce standard reports and extracts to comply with government agency requirements.
